The acronym DANIPS stands for "NCT of Delhi, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep, Daman & Diu and Dadra & Nagar Haveli Police Service". It is a federal police service in India, administering Delhi and the Union Territories of India.[3] It was earlier called the Union Territories Police Service. It is a Group B civil service of the Government of India. Officers of the service are recruited directly through the Civil Services Examination and are responsible for the law & order and policing functions of the National Capital, Delhi and the Union Territories. They form a feeder cadre of the Indian Police Service.

Selection Criteria[edit]

DANIPS officers are recruited directly through the rigorous Civil Services Examination conducted by Union Public Service Commission every year.[4] Moreover, the cadre is augmented by promotion of non-gazetted officers to the DANIPS.

The Civil Services Examination has a three stage competitive selection process. At stage one, there is an objective type examination called the preliminary exam. This is a qualifying examination. It consists of a General Studies paper and an aptitude test. Only the candidates who pass this can appear for the "Main Examination" which consists of nine papers. Each candidate has to select an optional subject (two papers) and to take four General Studies papers, an Essay, an English language paper and a regional language paper. This is followed by an interview.

Two-thirds of the strength is filled directly by DANIPS officers and the remaining are promoted from the non-gazetted police officers of the Union Territories.

DANIPS officers form the backbone of the largest metropolitan police force in India, the Delhi Police. The cadre has a sanctioned strength of 434. [5] Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, is the cadre controlling authority for DANIPS. They are regulated by the Delhi Government on the recommendation of the respective Governor/Administrator/ Lieutenant Governor of that Union Territory. [6]
